services at a south korean bank. professor kim jong un says the latest cyber attack is different from those in the past. >> translator: many private firms use shared servers. workers for these companies use the same programs in the same computer systems to nd out emails and access data. if hackers infect such a shared server with a computer virus, all the firms using the same server will be affected. i think this is what happened today. i think it was an organized crime. because the perpetrators were familiar with our schedule. they aimed for 2:00, when banks carry out most of their transactions before closing time. broadcasting firms assemble materials for programs aired in the evening around that time. the virus was like a time bomb for the computer networks. it took a certain period of time after the network system was infected for it to explode. i suspect the time lag between the possible infection and today's incident is likely to have been planned to coincide with the north's announcement that it will attack the south. >> north korea's media report that the country's leader, kim jong

with this guy, we have no idea what kim jong un is like at all. i realize that dennis rodman is quite a wild guy and quite an interesting fellow, i might add, but we now have at least we have a communication from rodman to this guy, which is more than we've ever had. >> yeah, the question is, what communication went into rodman and what reported that communication is coming out. you can get a distorted view. >> greta: it is distorted. i think it is distorted. >> and i think he's presented a distorted view. if they want to communicate with us, there are ways to do it. it's a question here not of one individual kim jong un, it's a question of a regime that's followed a pattern, including since he took office of repressing its people and threatening its neighbors and nothing since kim jong un took power after the death of his father has changed. if anything, it's gotten worse. they've restricted the border to prevent north korean refugees from coming out and tested the nuclear device for the third time and there's every indication, increased cooperation with iran and i think the threat is growing l

"the question is for south koreans, can we live peacefully with nuclear armed north korea? the answer is no". south korean lawmaker mj chung -- the son of the founder of hyundai -- believes his country can no longer sit on its hands, watching its belligerent neighbor develop nuclear weapons. he says its time for south korea to have its own nuclear arsenal. "the nuclear deterrence can be the only answer. we have and it would appear south koreans tend to agree. recent polls show that two- thirds of citizens surveyed support the idea, especially in the wake of north korea's third nuclear test, carried back in 1991, south korea volunt
